As first time home buyers, there was so much we didn't know about the many different processes involved. We are very thankful to Kelly Jones from Gowing and Co. for taking the time to explain everything we didn't understand, reply promptly to numerous emails, and for working hard on our behalf to ensure purchasing our home went smoothly and efficiently. We also appreciated her prompt dealings with the other professionals involved (mortgage brokers, vendor's lawyer etc.), that meant everything was sorted in a timely manner. Even after everything was done and settled, Kelly went the extra mile and sorted last minute bits and pieces for us. Much appreciated.

I required a lawyer for an Employment Relations matter in late 2014.  From the moment I met with my lawyer at Gowing & Co, I was impressed with her very professional, but personable manner.  Throughout the process, my lawyer ensured  I was well informed which definitely helped ease the stress of the situation and gave me the utmost confidence in her commitment and dedication to my case.

My lawyer's legal knowledge and highly effective communication skills, ensured a successful outcome, in a very timely manner.

Roger Gowing did a great job in representing and supporting my son through the court process and worked extra hard to ensure he received a good outcome.  Since his court appearance my son has made great progress focusing and improving his life in all aspects, as a husband, as a father, working full-time and becoming more involved in representative sports.

People make mistakes and learn from them.  Roger saw the potential in my son and fought for him to receive a positive and rehabilitative penalty for his crime.  Even though the process was stressful, the positive outcomes of this have been phenomenal.  Roger was instrumental in assisting my son to achieve his true potential and we as a family are grateful for his assistance on our behalf.

My husband and I have been clients of Gowing & Co Lawyers Ltd for more than 20 years.

They have represented us with business transactions, the purchase and sale of properties, family trust, and personal affairs.

In 2013 Mr Gene Tomlinson represented myself and 3 colleagues in an employment issue that took 18 months to resolve. We found Gene to be extremely helpful and professional with dealing with this complex issue at a very stressful time.

All the staff at Gowing & Co Ltd have been very pleasant, informative in the various aspects of legal requirements my husband and I have required over the past 20 years.

I recommend their expert service to anyone inquiring about legal matters in Whakatane and would not hesitate to continue with this practice.

I found Gowing and Co and yourself in particular exceptionally helpful and easy to deal with. You were always willing to answer my questions no matter how vague and discuss options re moving forward or concerns I might have. 

My sisters estate whilst small was not straight forward and there were a number of issues where your advise and assistance made the whole process much easier. I found you to be very approachable, you were always honest and open with your information. Your assistance made a difficult period and process much more manageable.

I would not hesitate to recommend yourself and your firm to anyone looking for a Lawyer firm in the Whakatane or the Taupo area.

As the law firm for our mother’s estate we found Gowing & Co Lawyers to be most helpful and efficient. To hand over all the estate work saved a huge amount of stress for our family. A loved one’s death is very difficult so having the paper work concerning banks, shares and property looked after for us in a timely fashion was a relief. We appreciated Gowing & Co's  professional and sympathetic communication at all times.
